Okay, so the "Rum Diary" wasn't a big hit and frankly, wasn't a very good movie either. All the promise of a sun soaked Hunter S. Thompson surrogate in Johnny Depp was wasted with a narrative that went nowhere in a movie that is really only notable for Amber Heard looking great in it. But the music was pretty top shelf, and in fact, it seems to have been so good that a second soundtrack album is on the way.

Okay, so the "Rum Diary" wasn't a big hit and frankly, wasn't a very good movie either. All the promise of a sun soaked Hunter S. Thompson surrogate in Johnny Depp was wasted with a narrative that went nowhere in a movie that is really only notable for Amber Heard looking great in it. But the music was pretty top shelf, and in fact, it seems to have been so good that a second soundtrack album is on the way.

You might remember the first one featured Patti Smith, Dean Martin and Depp himself along with a good chunk of the score, well Smith's "Mermaid" is back, along with a batch of other tunes from the film including the quirky novelty hit "Telstar" by The Tornados, "Surfing Dreams" by Dick Dale & The Del-Tones and "After All (I Live My Life)" by Frankie Miller. All told, this spans 16 tracks (including a few leftover score bits from Christopher Young) and is an appropriately breezy collection of tunes, which might make for a good mix to have while drinking some cocktails at spring break or whatever.

The movie is already on DVD and BluRay, but if you gotta have music, this collection will hit iTunes on March 3rd. Full tracklist below. [Facebook]
